its obvious that the last version of FF has setting issues. Something new in the config settings is preventing css mods from taking place. I know about the toolkit css item etc.... but there is something else that is not right. Maybe you should check with Apple before you release updates. Please find out what is is..you might have to talk to Apple and try different things on a Mac ....to confirm that css works.. I am running the latest.. I think its definitely a FF thing because it worked before and other fonts controlled by Mac are not having the problems that the bookmarks toolbar is having regarding css to enlarge the microscopic font that in on a Mac toolbar. If you cant find anything then I guess its time to go to Brave.

I'm fed up with the lack of support from Firefox. This issue has been going on for three weeks. The last Firefox update crashed TWICE! When I opened a Google/Firefox, An Update window popped up. Since I normally let them download or whatever they do, I wasn't concerned. Then it showed an "Error". I didn't see an "Error Code Number or Name" as it disappeared quickly. I tried to open Firefox/Google. To my surprise, all I got was a Blank Window. I tried clicking on the "Home Icon". Nothing changed. I tried my Bookmarks. No affect. I WAS Signed In. I tried finding the Fictional "Firefox Support". I got nowhere. I would've Googled the issue, but I couldn't even use that. Nothing Worked. I finely decided to download a NEW Firefox/Google. Once I did, it worked fine all day. The next day, I opened the newly Downloaded one. Again I was greeted by the Firefox "Update" It started, then showed an Error. Again, I tried to open Firefox/Google. I got the same blank page as before. I decided to Remove, ALL Firefox/Google. from my Computer. Then I download another New Firefox. I made ONE change. I stopped Firefox from Updating Automatically. Day three, I opened Firefox, I opened normally... Almost. Now I have the SAME Firefox Update waiting. If I let it Download, it may Crash again. I lost ALL of my Bookmarks too. I went to the Recommended Firefox Site to retrieve them... It was a LIE! Now I have the SAME Firefox Update waiting. I have NEVER missed an Update Let me guess what Firefox is going to say. That is IF they reply at all; No one else reported this issue. ( And I have Ocean front property in Arizona). Make sure your operating system is up to date. (I must be too stupid to keep my system up and maintain this Machine). I should upgrade to the (The Digital Pile of...... that goes by the name) Windows 10, and (The Garbage called) Google Chrome. (Why would I Downgrade to one System that didn't work when it was released, a Browser that was Garbage when it was offered the first time (In 2008), and they WON'T Fix? I'd be better off taking a hammer to my PC. and my own head).

Just a quick note. When I first signed up for Google (Prior to the 2008 Google Chrome fiasco.) my Gmail stopped working. I could receive Mail, but I couldn't Open, Read, Delete, or anything else. This lasted for Five Years. I tried getting Help. I never got a reply from anyone. Then it started working. No explanation from Google. 

Don't bother telling me "Well... It is Free". It isn't.

Hey guys, I am having a bit of a problem here. I am trying to completely get rid of both the "Customize..." button and the "Remove Extension" button completely with the exception of the "Remove" button in Firefox Add-ons. I want to make it where I cannot see any of the two, nor be able to click on any of them. My reason for this is simple, I have an extension that isn't fully protected by either "FoxFilter" or "Public Fox" (which are both very effective extensions but each have their own shortcomings), which is called "eScan Web Blocker." This extension while effective, can still be easily deleted without having to go into the "Add-ons" button and going through the usual password check before deleting.

All you have to do is drag and drop from the Customize... menu after you click on the Customize... button and then right click, move cursor to "Remove Extension" button and left click on said option before confirming the extension's removal.

Again, what I need to have happen is for both the "Customize..." button on the context menus and on the main menu (the button that has an icon of three horizontal bars running parallel to each other) and the "Remove Extension" button removed from the context menus as well. I only should, after all is said and done, be able to delete this extension or ones with similar flaws by ONLY CLICKING ON THE ADD-ONS BUTTON AND GOING THROUGH A PASSWORD CHECK.

Please help me. I don't know what to do. I am using Firefox Developer Edition on my Windows 10 Home Desktop PC. I have attached visual aid in order to show you guys what I am talking about. And please explain this to me as simple as you possibly can. Also, sorry if the screen shots are so big, I use a computer that has a GTX 1080 graphics card (4k gaming graphics card).

I recently switched to firefox from opera because of i couldnt search "z table" without going to amazon for some reason which had no solution. Now i have this habit of when new tabs open, they are always next to the current one. NOT DIFFRENT TABS THAT HAVE DIFFRENT WEBSITES, ALL OF THEM. I looked at some solutions that told me to change browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent to true but it only works for tabs that have diffrent websites. And the extentions "always right", "open tabs next to the current" dont work.

nVidia Geforce 7600 W10P. Starting with the version of firefox 67, and, at least, until the last after launching firefox begins to flash: you press the PCM - let go-something flashes, then again disappears and hangs. You can't use it. In 66.0.5 and earlier, this was not the case. I've seen similar crap on my computer in the latest versions of Google Earth plus and iFunBox. It seems that either this OpenGL or this Webrender is to blame, which they introduced from version 67. Starting with the 67th version, there and about: config shoveled and so on - how to start again, infections, your cool-Vert and again everything flies. Hardware acceleration enabled-disabled-sense-0. On the Internet, information 0.

When Firefox is launched, a Finder Message reads: "The application “Firefox.app” can’t be opened." After problems with Firefox (possibly related to Kaspersky Internet Security software), I finally resorted to: a) uninstalling and deleting all Kaspersky software (which had no effect), b) deleting all Firefox and Mozilla files, and c) reinstalling a new downloaded version of Firefox. Firefox still will still not launch when the Firefox icon in the Applications folder is clicked. The so-called safe-mode launch is not available when the Option key was used for launch. I can launch the new version of Firefox using a Terminal command (which also restores previous in-use windows and website pages that were in use), but no web pages will load anyway.

Hi. I use Firefox from many years. Today I was trying to inspect a my web page which looks strange in my Firefox for Android but I just can't. In my desktop I have Firefox 73.0.1 and in my Android phone I have Firefox 68.5.0. If I try to connect I get a message which tells to update Firefox from 68.5 to 71.0 (minimum supported version) but I can't find this version anywhere. I have installed Firefox Nightly for Developer in my phone but now the problem is that the version is too recent... What should I do?

I am trying to customize my Firefox on mac so that the menu bar is always displayed. However, looking at ways to fix this I am told to go to the customization menu, click the tool bar drop down menu and click "menu bar". However, I do not have this option. Only the book mark bar is displayed? How do I make it so that the menu bar is always displayed when I browse with firefox? Every time I change a tab the menu bar pops up because I scrolled to high and its impossible to enjoy this browser. I've tried resetting my browser to default settings and this never fixed the problem. Please help!
